Podcast: Kevin Puts. Three fascinating symphonic works.
August 26, 2016
Kevin Puts is one of today’s leading American composers. His persuasive music, colourfully orchestrated and emotionally charged, is well showcased on this month’s new release of three of his highly engaging symphonic works. Raymond Bisha guides us from the adventurous harmonic combinations of River’s Rush to the elegant transparency of the Flute Concerto and the arresting atmospheric shifts of Symphony No. 2. The latter was written in response to the events of 9/11. It moves from unsuspecting bliss to rhapsodic patriotism before hurtling into violent upheaval, and culminating in a coda of uncertainty and hope.
